The Missionary-in-Residence Program at Union University is designed to provide a temporary home for missionaries serving on stateside assignment (furlough) and to promote awareness of global missions to the Union University and surrounding church communities. Union University is committed to active involvement in global missions. By hosting missionary families each academic year, our faculty, staff, and students hear eyewitness accounts of God's movement around the globe as well as discover short and long term opportunities of service.
The Office of Spiritual Life desires for the faculty, staff, and students of Union University to integrate involvement in global missions into their lifestyles. By offering the Missionary-in-Residence Program on our campus, students can meet individually with a missionary and discuss life in another country, mission opportunities, or cross culture missions. Missionaries possess a wealth of knowledge about different cultures, world religions, and the peoples of the world. They assist the faculty, staff, and students of Union University in broadening its global outlook, increasing its understanding of global missions, and expanding our vision of using specific vocations for God's kingdom.
